Royal Enfield Himalayan has faced a number of issues with regard to quality and performance. Some owners even termed it as one of the most sub-standard bikes ever launched in India.

Buyer’s complaints are aplenty and it is the most talked about bike for all the wrong reasons. User complaints ranged from faulty engine suspension to chassis cracking and issues with clutch, frame, nuts and bolts. Here is a list of all the issues reported by owners of Himalayan.

One owner, Akhil Ng is so frustrated with the problems that he has taken his bike to the showroom with a ‘RIP Himalaya’ note and garland and parked it at the dealership.

It is now revealed in sales reports that not a single unit of Royal Enfield Himalayan has been sold since 1st April 2017. The reason, the company wants to iron out all the issues and launch the BS4 variant as a completely new model, with FI (and probably ABS).

Speaking about the upcoming Himalayan FI BS4 variant, Rudratej Singh, President of Royal Enfield has announced that the BS4 fuel injected Himalayan is set to enter markets sometime soon. He adds that the company is proud of the performance of this upgraded version of the Himalayan and is confident of its success.

Royal Enfield Himalayan is produced from the company plant in Chennai. It is powered by a 410cc oil cooled, single cylinder engine offering 24.5 bhp power at 6,500 rpm and 32 Nm torque at 4,000-4,500 rpm mated to a 5 speed transmission.
